Boasting an international event calendar that most cities would envy, Melbourne is home to a sporting fever that grips the city. See where battles have been won and lost on the field at the Melbourne Cricket Ground or on the tennis court at Rod Laver Arena. Hear the stories of the infamous Melbourne Cup, during which an entire nation stops to watch a horse race.

I suggest you take this tour on your first day in Melbourne. Our guide Dave was very knowledgeable and gave us a full rundown on the history of the area together with tips on places to visit during the rest of our stay. I'm sure what we learned from him made our visit to Melbourne so memorable as we knew where to find all the cute bars, cafes, tea houses, restaurants etc. Dave also provided us with a very informative fact sheet which we will keep for future visits. Highly recommend!
The tour guide was excellent, he was able to provide information about Melbourne's history that was interesting and informative. We enjoyed a cup of tea / coffee along the way and it was great to sit and talk to the other people on the tour. I thought that it was good value for the money.
